Eric Trump Is Getting Dragged On Twitter For Illegally Posting A Photo Of His Marked Ballot

Today is Election Day, which means that supporters from all parties are flocking to polling locations to cast their vote for the next POTUS. It’s a day of political fervor and anxiety — and it is yet another day of Eric Trump Mistakes.

It all started out so innocently. Naturally, Eric Trump went to the polls and did what any good (technically) middle child would do: he cast a vote for his father, Donald Trump.

Unfortunately (and hilariously) he decided to tweet out a photo of his marked ballot in support of his dad, proudly stating that it was an “incredible honor” and that his father will do “such a great job for the U.S.A.”

The only snag? According to New York state law, it is actually illegal to publicly share a photo of your completed ballot. According to the law, any person who “(s)hows his ballot after it is prepared for voting, to any person so as to reveal the contents … is guilty of a misdemeanor.”

Eric was immediately notified that his photo was illegal, and promptly deleted the ballot selfie.

However, this is modern America, and it isn’t difficult to get ahold of Eric Trump’s ballot photo, which is consequently still making the rounds on Twitter.

The Twitterverse is all too happy to remind Eric of his Election Day snafu — because really, if there had to be one Trump kid who screwed up election day for their father, it would definitely be Eric.

However, Eric’s ballot selfie also raises the important question: does Eric Trump know how to fill out the empty bubbles on a ballot?

No. Evidently, he does not.
